Saskatoon singer-songwriter Jen Lane twists a classic country heartbreak song to end with a sense of resolution in her new single “My Man.” Staying true to the honesty and depth found in her recent album This Life of Mine, “My Man” explores the confusion of a breaking heart and the hope that we cling to through the hard times in a relationship. Her first lyric video (conceptualized, filmed and edited by Taylor Leedahl) embodies the idea of a calm space under water where the artist sorts what is haunting her and lyrics like “won’t you come down, and be with me now” are put into deeper perspective.
Jen spent 2016 on the road touring from coast to coast to promote “This Life of Mine”, which charted on National College Radio for over 12 weeks, including reaching #1 on the Earshot Folk/Roots chart. It also garnered substantial radio play on CBC and Satellite Radio, and she performed on dozens of television shows across the country.
A veteran singer-songwriter and recording artist, Lane has found a harmonious place in the world of country, roots, folk and Americana music.
The last stretch of 2016!
On the final stretch of my vinyl release tour this November, and thrilled to be back at the Cameron house every Tuesday from 8-10pm with my partners in crime John Antoniuk, Kevin Neal, Pat Phillips and Megan Lane. Also the wonderful talented Sinners Choir will follow every Tuesday from 10- Close.
I feel truly blessed to have so much love and support from my family, friends and fans. I couldn’t do any of this without them. The past 2 years, since the making of the new album and the subsequent relentless touring, has been an amazing, head spinning, road grinding, and learning curve whirlwind! One more month!

Stay Tuned! And stay warm!

ICYMI, the video for the title track of my new album and recent single is out! I want to thank Dana-Marie Battaglia for capturing the recording experience for “This Life of Mine”. It was great to have you be a part of it all! Also to Matt Smith from Matt Braden Photo for putting it all together so beautifully! This one is very near and dear to me. Not only does it really capture and reflect the whole experience for me, it was the song we finished for my Grandfather who passed during the making of this album. He would’ve been proud! And he would have loved those alpacas as much as I do!
I want to give a huge thanks to the whole crew. My producer John MacArthur Ellis, Nick Stecz (percussion), My husband, band-mate and manager John Antoniuk, Jamie Prentice (engineer), Jesse Padgett and Michael Donley. It was an absolute pleasure working with you all! Thank you all for helping me make this record happen!
I also want to give a huge shout out to FACTOR Canada, Creative Saskatchewan, Sask Music, Rawlco, and the Saskatchewan Arts Board. I am incredibly lucky to be able to afford the opportunity to fulfill and share my artistic visions. Thank you all for your support!
Next up, Ontario/Quebec tour in November!
